International Electric Corporation Venomhand is a cyberhand option designed for military applications and available on the illegal cyberware black market. To all examination the Venomhand looks like any other cyberhand. It can be Superchromed®, Realskinned™ or left as is.

A mental command can cause a thick hypodermic needle to be extend from one finger or from all four. Each needle is connected to an individual bracket within the forearm. The brackets are designed to take a standard sterile medical reservoir cartridge from 1 to 5cc in volume. Each reservoir can carry a different drug or toxin. When the needles puncture the skin of the target, a second mental command will cause anywhere from. 1 cc to all 5 to be injected into the target. The needles are thick and exceptionally resistant to breakage. They are also armor piercing, doing 1D6-1 damage to 1/2 normal SP in an attack. If the attack penetrates, the needles pierce the skin. The needles do little damage to flesh, however, doing only 1/2pt of damage per needle if used as a weapon without toxin. Any liquid drug or toxin may be loaded into the brackets. The needles are automatically sterilized through ultrasound each time they are withdrawn into the fingertips. Replacement needles cost 10eb a piece on the open market, 20eb on the black market. IEC recommends changing them every six months, more often with frequent use.

This item is popular not only with solos and assassins but also with posers, dorphers and chromers who like to shoot up at concerts and at parties. The hand makes smuggling drugs into secure surroundings easy. Detection can be made only if the forearm structure is examined visually or by x-ray. Each time an injection is attempted roll 1D10 for each needle used. Injection fails on a roll of 1. Drug costs as listed in Cyberpunk 2020. N VH[1]
